Elton John - "Go It Alone" lyrics

It's so hard to say goodbye When there's nothing left to give When this house is just a hill of bones Where you and I once lived If we put it back together By the skin of our teeth You'd still pull it all apart Bit by bit, piece by piece
And I'll go it alone Call this house my home Build it up again with someone new Build it brick by brick Till I find a girl that fits This home's a whole lot better without you

There's no passion alive When you count your phony schemes And the cars you drive to buy your friends They don't ever come back clean If the cards on the table Always turn up spades The cards that always cheat the hearts The spades you play just dug my grave
